Gig Information

If a place was to speak to you, what message would it give?

Wai-hī-rere across time has always authored its own narration through the vitality HIHĪ and flow of its waters, environment and people. HIHĪ draws inspiration from that authority, giving the message of this place human and instrumental voices.

HIHĪ showcases some of our most remarkable songbirds amidst the exquisite beauty of our natural environment.
Nestled at the base of Ahitītī and surrounded by the beauty of the Waihirere Domain Reserve, HIHĪ combines haka, waiata, opera and showcasing the beauty of te reo Māori.
